 As tribute to a special-edition 1970s Beetle that today’s younger VW diehards may only vaguely be aware of, Volkswagen’s new Beetle GSR might not deliver the heritage punch the company has in mind. It should, however, appeal to older folks who remember the original Gelb Schwarzer Renner—“Yellow Black Racer”—and perhaps even people who just like their cars to resemble bumblebees.

The modern Beetle GSR is very much a parts-bin creation, starting with a Beetle Turbo in Sunroof and Sound trim, and adding elements from elsewhere in the broad lineup. An R-Line appearance package, which becomes an option on other Beetles later this year, delivers cosmetic upgrades: an aggressive front fascia, LED-accented headlights, 19-inch wheels, black-painted brake calipers, and a rear diffuser piece. The whole boat, of course, is painted yellow and tarted-up with black paint on the hood and rear hatch, and is further zooted up with a GSR decal on the lower part of the doors.

Inside, the situation is much less outrageous, channeling the interior modifications from the R-Line. Three auxiliary gauges rise from the top of the dash, while bolstered seats are trimmed with yellow stitching. A flat-bottomed steering wheel adds some sporty flair, too. GSR badging appears throughout.
The Volkswagen Beetle was redesigned two years ago to better suit both male and female buyers--the rounded, friendly looks of the previous model found mostly women drawn to its shape. Best of all, it's no corny retro-themed recreation, but a reinterpretation of the original Beetle's aesthetic.
The first Beetle was a charmer in its own right, but its day is long past. The New Beetle that replaced it met almost universal acclaim for its design when introduced, but didn't stand the test of time. Now, the third time around, the Beetle appears to have hit its stride once again, taking the best of its forebears and building on them.

Wanting to draw in more male buyers, the Beetle's look has grown more masculine, especially with the lower, flatter roofline and more upright windshield.  At the same time, it's modern, but not in a trendy way. This shape, with its simple but shapely details, should hold up over the years.

Inside, the design clean and flowing, with rounded rectangles and circles the major themes. Controls are simple, both on the wheel and in the center stack.

For both the inside and the outside, throwback looks from the '50s, '60s, and '70s are available, as is a special-edition Fender model.

Sold as both a coupe and a convertible, the Beetle is changing up its powertrain lineup in 2014. The Beetle started the 2014 model year with a 2.5-liter five-cylinder in the base model, but Volkswagen has replaced this engine with a new 1.8-liter turbocharged four-cylinder.

The 2.5-liter five-cylinder rated 170 horsepower and up to 22 mpg city and 31 mpg highway; VW rates the new 1.8-liter turbo at 170 horsepower as well. The new turbo four-cylinder boosts gas mileage by 16 percent, however, according to VW. For the best mileage, there's the Beetle TDI Clean Diesel (yes, that's its full name), scoring 28 and 41 mpg city/highway. 

For those who like a little more punch, the 2014 Beetle R-Line offers 210 horsepower from a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. The R-Line replaces the Beetle Turbo for the 2014 model year. Most Beetles are available with a choice of five- or six-speed manual or six-speed automatic or dual-clutch automatic transmissions.

Another addition for 2014 is the Beetle GSR. VW is limiting sales to 3,500 GSRs in total, each wearing a unique interior and exterior color theme and receiving special equipment. The Beetle GSR uses the same powertrain as the Beetle R-Line.

Comfortable and spacious (up front), though not all that quiet, the 2014 VW Beetle's cabin is well-laid out and handsome. Passengers up front have plenty of leg, head, and hip room in both the coupe and convertible. In hardtops, trunk space is pretty good; even in convertibles, not much space is lost to the collapsible wind deflector stowed against the top of the trunk.

USB, Bluetooth, and upgradeable audio systems are available in all Beetle models, while special themed trim lines offers the styles of the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s, both inside and out. Available tech and equipment upgrades include: navigation, sunroof (coupe models), and VW's new Car-Net connectivity system.

2012 beetle: VW beetle 2012 specifications

2012 beetle: VW beetle 2012 specifications Nothing compares to the feeling of getting into the driver’s seat of the all-new 2012 Volkswagen Beetle, but getting into the back seat is a close second. It’s as easy as pulling a handle on the top of the driver’s seat and pulling the back of the seat forward until it locks in place.

Download the 2012 Beetle Quick Start Guide (.pdf)
Keyless access with push-button start
The days of locking your keys in the car are essentially over, thanks to the available keyless access with push-button start feature. With your keys in your pocket or purse, your doors will automatically unlock as you approach the driver’s side door. Then, once you’re inside, a simple press of the start button turns the ignition on so you can drive off on your next adventure.
Completely redesigned
Prepare yourself to get stared at. A lot. Because the design of the all new Beetle is magnetic, iconic, and utterly unique. That gorgeous curvy profile and famous front end are recognizable around the world, and there are dozens of nicknames to prove it. To say that it’s a Volkswagen is actually an understatement. It’s the Volkswagen. It’s the soul of the brand. It’s the face that launched a global company

2.5L in-line 5-cylinder engine
The all new Beetle comes with a gutsy 2.5L, 170-hp, in-line 5-cylinder engine with 177 lbs/ft of torque. That means quick acceleration and passing power, and when the light turns green, some serious get up and go.² It boasts an impressive highway 29 mpg³ that helps you effortlessly tick off hours of freeway travel and it’s lots of fun zipping around town, too.
There are other ways to help save on gas besides searching for the cheapest pump. With regular checkups and mindful driving techniques, you could save a bundle.
Help save fuel with regular maintenance
Keep filters clean.
The air filter helps protect your engine from impurities. Replacing a dirty air filter with a clean one can improve acceleration time by around 6 to 11%.**
Maintain your engine.
Keeping your engine purring helps lead to long engine life and better gas mileage. If your car has failed an emissions test or is out of tune, fixing the problem can improve your gas mileage by 4%, on average.**
Keep an eye on PSI.
Keep the tires on your Volkswagen running on the recommended tire pressure noted on the interior of your driver’s side door. It can increase your fuel efficiency by as much as 3%.** The Tire Pressure Monitoring System on your Volkswagen helps monitor tire pressure and a light on your dashboard will alert you if pressure gets too low.
Use Volkswagen-approved oil.
We recommend synthetic motor oil to help improve gas mileage 1 to 2%.** Ask your local Volkswagen dealer which oil is best for your Volkswagen model.
VW Approved Oils
The way you drive makes a difference
Consider how you use the gas pedal. You’ll be surprised how much money you can save over time.
Drive smoothly.
It’s been proven that heavy acceleration and abrupt braking or speeding can lower gas mileage by 5% around town, and over 33% on the highway.**
Avoid excess weight.
Keep your trunk and back seat free of unnecessary, heavy stuff.
Avoid idling.
You get zero miles per gallon when you idle, so avoid idling whenever possible. However, it’s normal for some models to idle at 1,600 rpm when you start them, if they’ve been off a few hours. This will warm up your engine and ultimately help lower your emissions.
Don’t speed.
At speeds over 60 mph, gas mileage usually decreases. So lighten up on the accelerator and keep your speed at a steady 55-60 mph.
Use cruise control.
Help improve your gas mileage by maintaining a constant speed on major roads and in free-flowing traffic.
Be organized.
Combining your errands into one outing avoids unnecessary cold starts, helps keep your engine running warm and more efficiently, and can even reduce your overall mileage and gas consumption.

2012 VW Beetle






Beetle went for more progressive, more prominent and more grown-up

2012 The New Beetle's design boasts a more self-assured road presence. Its proportions give it a far more masculine, flatter and wider appearance. Its silhouette – with an extended bonnet, a more steeply angled windscreen set further back and a flat roof line – injects it with an unprecedented dynamism, similar to that of a sporty coupé.

If you look good on the outside, you’ll feel good on the inside too. The Beetle is no exception here, with its dynamic silhouette producing an entirely new sense of spaciousness in the interior. The steeper windscreen positioned further back, a flattened roof line and the enlarged exterior dimensions combine to create a surprising amount of room.

Inside, the Beetle pays homage to its roots: a compact instrument cluster with an eye-catching round dial in the centre evoke memories of the classic Beetle. Air vents and state-of-the-art infotainment features have, of course, been seamlessly integrated into the dashboard. One thing hasn’t changed though: the high-quality finish of the materials used.

Its designer Chris Lesmana from Indonesia, who loves this car so much.

VW New Beetle the most successful retro-car resurrection

VW New Beetle was probably the most successful retro-car resurrection of all time. When VW re-introduced the model back in 1998, it quickly gained enormous popularity, flew off dealer lots, and won countless awards. VW had a hit on their hands.

The New Beetle got much of the original’s fun-loving attitude and cheeky character — though it shared its guts with the new Jetta and Golf. Originally, the New Beetle was available with a 2.0 litre four-cylinder engine with 115 horsepower, or a 1.9 litre TDI four-cylinder diesel unit. The diesel engine uses less fuel, though the simple 2.0 litre gas engine should inexpensively meet the needs of most drivers.

Later in the Beetle’s life, a 1.8 litre turbo four cylinder engine was available with 150 horsepower, and a 2.5 litre five-cylinder unit eventually replaced all of the above as Beetle’s sole engine option. Manual, automatic and “Tiptronic” gearboxes were all available — depending on the model.

The gist? It shouldn’t be hard to find a Beetle that’s just perfect for your needs and budget.

WHAT OWNERS LIKE: The upscale interior, fun-to-drive factor and fuel consumption ratings are primary points of owner praise. Stereo systems with iPod integration were appreciated, as was the refined overall experience.

WHAT OWNERS HATE: The two biggest gripes reported by owners deal with visibility and trunk space — though some note squeaks and rattles that develop over time, too.

COMMON ISSUES: Looking at a TDI model? Be sure the idle is relatively smooth and free of missing, which could indicate a compression problem or potential engine damage.

Be sure the 1.8 litre turbo engine, if equipped, idles and pulls smoothly, too. These engines were known for frustrating failures of the electric coil packs that fire the spark plugs. If the engine ‘misses’, that’s likely what’s going on.

Also, be sure the timing belt on the turbo engine is within its service life and that oil changes were carried out within prescribed limits. Suffice to say a poorly-maintained 1.8T engine is not a desirable thing to own.

Get under the car and check for any signs of leaks, especially coolant. This could indicate a water-pump that’s readying to fail.

THE VERDICT: The used New Beetle comes standard with a great sense of community and great driving dynamics. It’s also a great candidate for a thorough pre-purchase mechanical inspection and extended warranty opt-in.

VW you can use regular oil

For a 1999 2.0 liter NON turbo VW you can use regular oil and regular gas. Its the only engine that can run regular fuel and regular oil. Normally, 5-30 is used in this vehicle. If you can afford it, use a synthenic oil like Mobil 1 0-40w European formula. It will meet the requirements you have.
Be aware though, that the 2.0 liter NON turbo has a history of high oil consumption; 1200 to 1500 miles per quart of oil usage is not uncommon.. so check the oil level regularly and don't top it off, just add oil when it gets to the top of the add area of the dipstick. The 2.0 liter NON turbo four is good engine, just not very smooth or powerful; however, if the oil is checked regularly and added when needed, it will last a very long time. It is in my humble opinion, the most reliable of the late model water cooled VW engine (based upon dealership service experience).







Hope this helps, a car nut.

LOVELY VW BEETLE

Volkswagen Type 1 is an economy car produced by the German auto maker Volkswagen (VW) from 1938 until 2003. It used an air cooled rear engined rear wheel drive (RR layout).
In the 1950s it was more comfortable and powerful than most European small cars, having been designed for sustained high speed on the Autobahn, and ultimately became the longest-running and most-produced automobile of a single design. It remained a top seller in the US, even as rear-wheel drive conventional subcompacts were refined, and eventually replaced by front-wheel drive models. Its success owed much to its extremely high build quality, and innovative and eye catching advertising. The Beetle car was the benchmark for both generations of American compact cars such as the Chevrolet Corvair, and subcompact cars such as the Chevrolet Vega and Ford Pinto. It was the German equivalent and counterpart to the Morris Minor, Renault 4CV, Citroen 2CV, Fiat 600, Saab 92, and Volvo PV444 immediate post war European economy cars. The 1948 Citroen 2CV was the beginning of a switch to front wheel drive by European manufacturers in the 1960s and 1970s, Volkswagen were among the last to change with the Golf, after nearly going bankrupt. The Beetle was thirteen feet long and the Mini was only ten feet, but they had similar interior space.





The car was originally known as Käfer, the German word for "beetle", from which the popular English nickname originates. It was not until August 1967 that the Volkswagen corporation itself began using the name Beetle in marketing materials in the US. In Britain, VW never used the name Beetle officially. It had only been known as either the "Type I" or as the 1100, 1200, 1300, 1500, or 1600 which had been the names under which the vehicle was marketed in Europe; the numbers denoted the vehicle's approximate engine size in cubic centimetres. In 1998, many years after the original model had been dropped from the lineup in most of the world (production continued in Mexico until discontinued, officially on 9 July 2003[2]), VW introduced the "New Beetle" (built on a Volkswagen Golf Mk4 platform) which bore a cosmetic resemblance to the original.
In an international poll for the award of the world's most influential car of the twentieth century the Beetle came fourth after the Ford Model T, the Mini, and the Citroën DS.[3]

litle car




The VW Beetle is a cult favorite here in the States, but in Germany, it's not so well loved. That could be part of the reason why Volkswagen has been slow to produce a successor to the new Beetle, but word from Motor Trend is that two models could be coming shortly. The first Beetle will be based off the Gen-VI Golf and will hit production in 2010 or 2011.

Word out of Wolfsburg is that a second Beetle could be on the way as well, but this one would be based off the up! minicar. That would give VW a sub-brand Beetle lineup, kind of like what Toyota has with Scion, but with an eye on MINI buyers. The smaller up!-based Beetle would also be more true to the original Bug, which was a cheap and efficient "People's Car" with the engine out back (supposedly). Quality problems and a weak dollar have lead VW to struggle in the U.S. over the past few years, but an inexpensive, reliable car with top-notch fuel economy would go a long way toward reversing that trend.
